August 4, 2014, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Wait a bit before you decide to switch over to an Android tablet due to budget issues. The Kingsing W8 tablet is set to kick start a price drop in the Windows tablets scenario.

Chinese tablet maker Kingsing has priced its new Windows tablet, Kingsing Windows W8, under the $100 mark. With a slew of cheaper Android devices make a beeline to the market, it’s now the turn of Windows devices to attract the masses with a lower price tag.

The device runs on Windows 8.1 OS and comes geared with Intel Atom inside. The Intel Bay Trail-T packs quad core clocked to process at a speed of 1.8 GHz. Powered with Intel HD graphics, the 8-inch screen provides IPS display of 1280 x 800 resolution with 5 touch support.

The only facet compromised to keep up with the price tag is the 1 GB RAM, which could seem shallow to the demands of the Windows OS users. With an internal memory of 16 GB, storage is expandable up to 64 GB with external props.

Featuring a 4500mAh Li-ion battery, the device do provides the inevitable features for a tablet, including 802.11 Wi-Fi b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, front and rear cameras  and an HDMI port.

Windows tablets have been witnessing a price drop after Microsoft’s decision to roll out the OS free of cost to limited OEMs.

As of now, the W8 would be the cheapest Windows tablet in the market and the first to come with a price tag under hundred dollars.

With Toshiba Encore 7 and Emdoor EM-i8080 tablet being the recent examples of low priced Windows tablets, the arrival of Kingsing W8 will only encourage further Windows tablet makers to curb down prices.
